Dr. Elizabeth Price
Dr. Elizabeth Price loved biology and the sciences ever since she was a little girl, and developed a passion for healthcare during her college years. After volunteering at a hospital for human patients throughout her college career, Dr. Price had a thought: why not satisfy her desire to help others while simultaneously getting to work hands-on with animals in a medical capacity? She quickly settled on veterinary medicine and hasn’t looked back since!
Dr. Price is originally from South Carolina, and moved to Hixson, Tennessee with her family when she was 12 years old. She completed her undergraduate degree at East Tennessee State University, before gaining acceptance to the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Price signed on with the South Rhea Animal Hospital team as an Associate Veterinarian shortly after graduating in 2012, and became a co-owner in the fall of 2016 along with Dr. Sherle Thompson.
Away from work, Dr. Price enjoys kayaking and relaxing in the peace and quiet of the great outdoors. She and her husband have a young daughter, Charley Kate, and several pets. Dr. Price and her family own Buster, an aging Chihuahua who often comes to work with his mother; a big-eared mutt named Ellie; Lady the 90-pound Black Lab mix; a senior Boxer named Baxter; and a black cat who goes by Kiko.
